Comments: If you were in NJROTC at Gulf High sometime during the 1990’s, we will be having a reunion NEXT year, Memorial Day weekend. That’s Saturday May 26, 2012. It will be at Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs, FL beginning at noon & lasting until the sun sets & the park closes. Bring your families too! We all plan to bring a dish for everyone so it’s affordable for all so I must have an RSVP list by May 1, 2012. If you are on Facebook, search Gulf High School NJROTC 1990’s Reunion; there is an event page set up. There is also a group to join on Facebook by the same name. Please send me your current names, addresses, phone numbers, year of graduation & if you are a veteran if you are interested in attending so I may mail you a paper invitation later in the year. There will also be a sign-up list for you to bring a food item to share with everyone. If you are in contact with anyone who also was in ROTC, please share this information with them. Help me track down fellow classmates to include everyone; send me their information so I can mail them invitations as well! Starting early so we have time to track people down & out-of-towners can make plans to attend too. Thanks so much for your help; hope to see you next year!!

Comments: Hello everyone! just poking around and stumbled on to this running stream of nostalgia. Hope everyone is faring well. I, oddly enough, become a crazy Chef and have been pursuing that passion for 10 long years now, and have been blessed with a beautiful girlfriend for 3 years now. We have an Apt right here in good old New Port Nowhere with 2 gorgeous Australian Shepherds. No children for me, thanks! Drop me a line if you remember me, which I doubt!

Comments: A lot has happend since my last update over a year ago. First in 2009, I was promoted to Lead Communications Officer and then Shift Supervisor 5 months later for Pasco County Fire Rescue. My husband and I welcomed our first child together, a beautiful baby girl. She is the light of our lives. She is so amazing and it’s amazing being a mom. I quit my job so that I could stay at home and be with her all the time. It’s been pretty nice watching her grow up and reach her milestones. In Aug. 2010, my middle stepson, 17, moved in with us so that he can graduate high school in May 2011. So far he’s doing well and that will be a day when he walks across Hudson High Schools stage with his diploma in hand. My husband’s county of assignment is Pasco, so that’s why we are here. Who would have known…full circle. I’m so blessed and happy. Congrats to each and everyone of you and your accomplishments. It’s nice to get on here every now and then and read the updates- Good or Bad.

Comments: We’ve received an insufficient number of alumni electing to attend the reunion activities as scheduled. Due to this shortcoming the financial numbers just do not cover the expenses for the two venues where we planned to have the reunion. Many hours of planning and coordination went into this plan, however, two nights of activities cannot be covered with the number of people who have sent their payments. Rather than cancel altogether, an alternate, less expensive, one night reunion was proposed. Friday’s activities at the Marriot would be cancelled and Saturday night @ the Seven Springs Country Club would entail a change in menu, two hours of an open bar, the previously scheduled DJ, and the cost reduced to $50 per person.

We understand the expectations of those alumni who have sent in their event fee. The proposed change to the reunion is being made in an effort to ensure the reunion will go forward. Obviously, any alumni who have sent in $75/$150 to attend the originally planned activities will be reimbursed the difference of $25 per person.

We need alumni to step up, get the word out, and get our former classmates to commit to this event! The Sevens Springs Country Club is extending their payment deadline to allow us the flexibility to attract more alumni. Please understand this is our best LAST chance to make this event possible.

Please respond immediately to this e-vite or e-mail gulfhigh.98@gmail.com letting us know your check is in the mail.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us immediately.

Thanks

Comments: Reunion UPDATE:

Comments: As you all know – we are well on our way to finalizing details for our 10 yr Reunion this summer – July 25th and 26th in the NPR area. We want to have all contact information to ensure that everyone who wants to come (hopefully everybody!) knows the detail etc…

We have chosen not to use an outside company to track down students to keep the reunion costs as low as possible. If you remember, we purchased a program with Keep In Touch from our class money. Unfortunately, this company was a bit mis-leading and I have gone rounds and rounds with them since 2006.

Please forward the below list to anyone you know from our class and hopefully they will pass on to. Also, if you have a myspace account – please post as a bulletin etc.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this summer!!

Please email gulfhigh.98@gmail.com with your email address, home address and if you will be bringing a guest. If you cannot make it this summer, please send in an email and we will note appropriately – so we dont keep trying to track you down 🙂

Comments: Hello all, I went to school there is 1995 and 96. Then I moved to Terre Haute, IN. I missed all the friends that I have made there during the years I was in school. When I moved to indiana it was definetly a different place. I have talked with a few people from down there but not many.

I have 5 kids. Two are mine; Three are stepkids. I am married to a wonderful man that would fall over backwards for me and my kids. I work currently at the library but have my degree with Paralegal sciences. I bought my first home and have been really enjoying it.

I am a stay at home wife and currently do AVON and am loving it, who would have thought? I moved to Pinellas county so that I could be with my husband and don’t regret leaving Tallahassee. The time is flying by and can’t believe that our reunion is right around the corner. I know that I’ve grown up a lot, but still in denial that 30 is just a very few short years away.

Due to all of that I have had to postpone going to New York for just another year or two. I am still a manager of a hair salon, and living in Palm Harbor. I still attend college, and can’t wait until I start my new life. Amazing how smart a person really is when they are not drinking all the time, or when someone gives them a chance to speak. LOL. My life is much different and simple now. I hope all is well for everyone.

It’s a shame that 7 years after high school that person was still playing childish games. I hope for their sake they learned to grow up since then.

Comments: Some of you may remember me, I only went to Gulf High for a couple of years. I’m the one that got pregnant in 9th grade. LOL. My son Andrew is going to be 11 years old this October (WOW) I got married last year to a wonderful man (Keith) who also has a son (AJ) that will be 11 in August. Keith and I have a beautiful little girl together. Her name is Amber and she is 1.5 years old. So, I am 25 years old and married with 3 kids. I never saw that in my future. My husband’s family owns a communication company, and I am lucky enough to stay at home with my kids. I do still have to work-but I get to do it here. I probably won’t be invited to the reunion since I did not graduate at Gulf, I quit school shortly after I had my son, but I did go back and get my G.E.D.

As for me, I am still working at Carrabba’s Italian Grill. I do just about everything there and just got offered a computer tech position. I unfortunetly couldn’t accept it because of my dog (I would be traveling a lot). I went to cosmotology school after my first year of college, and decided to go back to college last year. I’m not quite sure which field I will be studying yet, I am torn. Well it was good reading about everyone and all the good memories we all shared. I hope to keep in touch and everyone does the same (especially now that I know about this site). LOL Rachael

I am still working at Seven Oaks Elementary in Wesley Chapel. However, I am also working for Saint Leo University coaching cheerleading, it is the best! The cheerleading squad just transitioned from the recreation department to athletics; which is a big step in the world of cheerleading, so needless to say I have had my work cut out for me this year.

I am happy once again, to see that everyone that has posted is still doing so well. It was very nice hearing from and catching of with those of you that contacted me via email after my last post.

Comments: What’s goin’ on? Michelle is the one that always leaves messages on this so I thought I would finally leave one. As you know Michelle and I finally mariied and now we live in a big house that we don’t know what to do with. We just got a dog not to long ago (Norweigan Elkhound) named after the greatest coach of all time, “Bowden”. Michelle’s still designing clothes for the Limited Too and I myself have left the radio industry for good and now I sell new build homes (not realestate). But I still am working on music. I just got one of my songs put into a documentary called After Shock, The Movie (www.aftershockthemovie.com). My name is actually in the credits and the movie itself has been shown in theatres from the east coast to the west coast. I am currently working on sveral projects that I plan on getting to a contact I have at Arista Records, so that’s exciting. You can check out a website that Alex (one of my best friends after high school that went to River Ridge) and I have its www.realityhiphop.com. Michelle and I have no plans to have any babies because as you know I always have been and still am a big kid… I mean could I have gotten my Xbox 360 if I had a baby to pay for? I hate Ohio State University with a passion because there’s no other team up here so everyone jumps on that bandwagon. That’s the one thing I miss about Florida is the sports diversity. GO: FSU, Bucs, Magic, and Stanley Cup Champs the Lightning. And GO GULF HIGH…WOOOO!!!

Comments: what’s up yall…nice to hear from some of you guys. I just thought i would catch some of you people up on my life, not that anyone cares. As most of you know, i had sort of a drinking problem, but i’ve got that all cleared up now. Eight months ago i found God and I’m now a born again Christian. I got my pilots license around three years ago, and i’m now officially a Crop Duster in the greater Birmingham area. I don’t want to go on too long here, but you should know that i’m happily married to a beautiful southern belle, Anne Marie. Good luck to all, and God Bless.

I was offered an amazing job working in the corporate office of a video game company based here. I couldn’t ask for a better company to work for. We have a gorgeous, brand new apartment in an upscale community. I also plan to take some classes at UF starting in the Summer or Fall to further my education even more. No plans for kids anytime soon. Hope to hear from some of you soon!

Comments: Hi all,

Its been a while since I have visited the alumni site. I guess just as everyone else has…i should update where I am. I live in Maine and just got married in June. Well, I met the man of my dreams….Duncan. I am no longer working or required at this time to continue college, but I will say I am busy. We took the month of July off to vacation at the Hamptons. It was a blast. There is more action going on there than in Hollywood. Duncan is third generation in the family business of growing and harvesting blueberries. We have a 50 person staff that manages the fields though. I do not know if kids will be in our plans as Duncan is a bit older than me. Actually in May was his 66th birthday…and no I did not marry for money. I hope all is well and any of you out there that will be visiting Maine soon can drop by and visit. Sincerely, Jenni Dickerson (Porshakin)

Comments: I usually check up on this site about once a year and I figure that this is my once for this year. Michael and I moved to Deltona, FL (half way between Orlando and Daytona Beach) in January. We bought a house and love the freedom but hate when things break (no maintenance man to call…) Michael works for a company in dowtown Orlando and I am still a case manager for mentally ill adults but now for a company based in Daytona. Fortunately, my office is only 2 miles from the house! I’m going back to school in January for a master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy. After I graduate, we’ll discuss kids but for now we like the freedom and can’t bear the responsibilty. I hope that everyone is well, it sure sounds like it! Drop me a line sometime, I’d love to hear from you!!

Comments: Thought I’d e-mail something real quick. Still married to a wonderful man. We have no kids and not in a huge hurry. Right now we have Jewel (pug) and Demon (cat) and that’s enough! We just got back from Trinidad/Tobago yesterday from a family reunion. My husband is originally from Trinidad so that was the first time I’ve ever been there and more than likely that last time we’ll go there. I started back at school just to put another thing on my plate but basically take a lot of computer classes. I’m still employed for the state of Florida in law enforcement and love it. I’m the D.A.V.I.D. Administrator for over 35,000 users for a system that can pull up drivers license photos, information about DL’s, O.S.I. information, and JANUS information. Being the admin. for all those users, sure keeps me busy along with traveling around the state for work.

Hope all is well, can you believe that we’ve been out of school so long and pretty soon we’ll be planning for our reunion…where does time go??

E-mail me.

No kids, and not for a few years yet, just two cats and a puppy. I was really glad to talk to some of you that posted lately, and both Mark and I hope to hear from more of you soon.

Comments: just seeing what everyone has been up to. looks like we’ve all been pretty busy doing the grown-up thing, as weird as that sounds. as for me, i’ve been spending my days as a stay-at-home mom chasing around our now one year old, Chloe and our equally energetic six year old, Gabryelle. they are the most beautiful and amazing kids in the world, even when they are driving me insane. my husband just took a job in largo, so we’ll be moving to clearwater in the next couple of weeks. and i’ve finally decided that i want to be a labor and delivery nurse when i grow up. i plan to go back to school when Chloe is three or so. other than that things are going great for us, hope the same is true for everyone else.

Comments: When we graduated we used some of our class money (I am sure you all remember those car washes!) to purchase a service through Keep In Touch. We filled out paperwork at our graduation practice that included address etc…The service was explained as providing a questionnaire the first year and then a newsletter the following. Keep In Touch was supposed to keep up with this for 5 years and then be able to provide home addresses (tracked thru USPS) when it came time to plan a reunion. Even though we are a few years from the reunion, I am concerned with Keep In Touch not following through with the contract. I am only aware of 1 person (Katie MacNeil) ever receiving a newsletter. So that brings me to why I am posting…I have gone rounds with this company the last few months and they have not been able to provide a # of how many students they were able to reach, how many responded, or even how many they have on file. If you guys can post on here or send me an email – I need to know if the money we paid was properly used. If not, we will get this money refunded to the school and use the money to cut down costs of our reunion. Let me know…hope everyone is doing well!

My husband Thomas & I moved out here to Memphis with our 7-month-old baby boy – Gage. Things are good…couldn’t ask for more right now. Except maybe to still have Seeber & Marla within a 45 minute drive! Sherry – I will give you a call very soon – thanks for calling me out!

Comments: Over the years I messed up while messing around . . . then I came around while traveling around, and found a place to stick around. Still in college, aquiring knowledge. No wife or kids, or stuff like that. Keeping it clean, no longer mean. Still wierd as heck, but hey, that`s me! Got religious, got lots milk. Ran a shop that went flippidy-flop, and while in strife, became pro-life. It`s hard to remember that this December I graduate and come home for a while. But what-da-ya-know, as soon as I`m home I`ll go TO OHIO (I hope) in unclassy style. Anthropology/Archeology . . . that`s what I study, without any buddys. Taking that major to Ohio to the cool Catholic school, where the girls up there rule and the priests ain`t no fools. That`s all I have planned and that`s all I`ve done. It doesn`t sound like much, but it`s been loads of fun. Eat lots of pizza. Stay away from pork. In case you didn`t know, yup, I`m still a dork! Take care. God bless.

Comments: It’s been awhile since I wrote so what the heck…things are going great. My husband and I just moved into our own home with our pug, Jewel, and our cat, Demon. I still work for the state and the local police department. My husband is a SRO for a elementary-high school here in Tally. Yes, I married a Law Enforcement Officer. Who would have ever thought that, never in my future would I have dreamed that! School is going and I do that for “fun”. Hopefully we’ll have kids in the next year which is very exciting. Sounds like everyone is doing well in their lives. I’m still best friends with Jaime Gauvin (Smith) and George Gauvin as they live in Tallahassee, sometimes don’t know what I’d do without them. I go back to NPR every now and than to visit my friends and family and how things have changed so much. Can’t believe it’s only a few more years and it will be our 10 year reunion. Where does time go? Seems like yesterday we were in high school or just getting out and now……not enough hours in the day to get everything done! I wish everyone the best and see you in a few!

Jenni<—-is pretty busy with fulltime school and work. Currently I do corporate meeting planning and travel incentives so it allows me to travel a bit and polish my sales and business proposals. On the side I have started into the mortgage business (training with my father) so if any of you need one of those to support those families-email me. So as you can see, I have no time for family and children right now. Some people I would really like to hear from if they read this: Katie Davis, Misty, Marla Boatright, and some of the guy friends-Danny, etc.
I really hope ( even with marriages, kids, careers, and locations) that you all are getting what you expecting in high school-of high dreams and ideals for yourselves. Everything is about balance-and hopefully everyone from 1998 is well balanced and happy…
Take Care! JPO

Comments: I wish I could say that I am totally comfortable posting anything on this page, much less a life update on someone who felt that High School was (and accurately, it WAS) a strange and twisted time. But then again, you don’t get everything you want in life all the time and I was fortunate enough to learn that the hard way. So then…

Weird times. There are many names here that I remember and many more that I don’t. It’s proof of the subtle effects of time on the memories of adolescence; you think you’re fairly grown up in High School, you THINK you have it under control, but then again… no. I’m most surprised to see a post from my stepbrother, Kevin Leigh. Surprised, I suppose, because we’ve heard very little from him since his father (my stepfather and a damn good man) died on May 23rd, 2001. Which is a shame, because, well… we were brothers. Stepbrothers, albeit, but still. Kevin, enough playing ninja; get in contact with me, geezer, and get on the ball here.

Before this rambling post gets out of control, one last comment: Until a week ago, I was oblivious that this page existed and thus the news of Kim Gargano’s death came as a complete surprise. Now, some of you may remember that Kim and I were less than amicable in High School, which is true, but is not the point. The point is that the news of her death first produced shock, then a sense of loss, sadness and grief. Let me clarify: I don’t care if Kim hated my guts and would have put me in a meat grinder – she was bar-none a one-of-a-kind gal who impacted the lives of everyone around her. The Alumni, and perhaps the world is worse off without her… there are too few bright and shining stars that truly light up lives like she did. Of course, the Old Matt Blasi would have said this with a sarcastic sneer; not me. The Matt Blasi of Now knows better and has grown up a lot, survived the Grind so far, and speaks from the heart.

All right, that’s enough rambling then. Don’t worry because I don’t bite anymore. So, let’s wrap it up and consider this post in a salute to my stepbrother, a reevaluation of my Alumni status, and most importantly in memory of Kim.

Peace.

Comments: I can’t even beleive that it would be time for the 5 year reunion already. I am hoping that we are able to get together for the 10 year one. I graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Sport Management. I worked with the women’s basketball team there for 4 years as the team manager/practice player. Through a connection with one of the men’s team’s coaches I got and assistant coaching position with the women’s basketball team at NYU. So I am now back living where I grew up and enjoying it. I do miss many things about FL but that is why I try and visit as much as possible (beach). I am glad to hear most are doing well, although I am not sure many people would be posting horror stories on here. I would love to here from any and all of you.

Comments: HI Guys!! Wow I can’t believe how many of us are married with kids. I thought I was the only one “to young to get married” LOL. It will be 5 years for Eric and I in May. After graduation I started working for Equant Integration, it’s a company that provides global data and IP network and integration services for multinational businesses. During that time I also went to beauty school and got my manicurist license. Didn’t really put it to use though, the company I was working for was to good to leave. In aug. 2001 our beautiful son Cooper Brayden Vick was born. Then in May of 2002 we moved to NJ and started our own buisness, A/C and Heating. It is going awsome. It feels so good to be back in Jersey where we actually get four seasons instead of one long year of inferno style heat. We still own a house in Holiday though. We are going to sell it though, to much of a hassel having renters. So if your interested (cheap plug) LOL. I gotta say my hey’s to Pam S., Alison N., Litsa, Dwinell, Mario, Tommy R, Tommy Y, Michelle G, Casey L, and Beth I miss you guys!! Congrats C/O 98

Comments: I was looking through my Senior yearbook and remembered this site and thought I would say hi.
5 years. I have changed a lot since high school and I’m sure a lot of you have too. From what I’ve read, many people have babies, or marriages and some are finished with school and in their careers. I, on the other hand haven’t accomplished any of those. I’m still attending USF and working on a Business Management Degree and a Physical Education Degree. I have one year left, making it 6 years for glory. I’m the athletic director at a middle school here in Tampa. I’m enjoying it, but I’m seeking to coach basketball alone in the future, along with owning my own private business.
I think a 5 year reunion would be great. I’ve only seen about 15 people from the class of ’98 since high school and would love to see how everyone is making out! My e-mail address is IDSCoach@yahoo.com if anyone would like to get a hold of me. Hope to hear from some of you!

It seems like a lot of people have been checking out this site so I thought it was about time I contributed to this ever-growing stack of everyone’s miscellaneous life sagas.
As for me, I’m STILL living in Gainesville and STILL going to UF… I’ve somehow managed to make it through an A.A. degree, then 2 and a 1/2 years of OT school + 2 internships for a Bachelor’s degree, and now I’m back for more torture as I work on my Master’s in Health & Rehab Science. Talk about never ending! When I graduate AGAIN in December (’03) I actually think I might finally throw in the education towel to find myself a career and get out of debt! …
But anyway, enough of my ramblings – just wanted to touch base with all of you whom I haven’t talked to in ages. Drop me a line if you’re feeling inspired, lol. ~ Shannon

Comments: Hey guys. It’s cool to hear what everyone’s doing with there lives. As for me, I’m still in school, probably for the next ten years of my life. I still have stories to tell only this time I’m writing them down. And I still have no idea what I want to do with my life outside of writing novels for a living. Unfortunately the publishing world isn’t very kind to new authors, and another profession is called for. I’ll most likely go into a teaching or preaching proffesion. Or perhaps change my major again. If you guys have any info on the mentioned reunion please e-mail me or Ron Malcolm. And Ron, please get in touch with me if you know what’s going on. ~PEACE~

An idea was to maybe not have anything too formal but more of a 5 year party instead of a reunion. I thought maybe we could all get together and have a good time and do a little partying…??? Please let me know how this sounds. If you cant figure out how to post a message (someone said people are having a hard time doing this) than email me soon so we can get some places checked out and get a hold of people. Thanks

Please try to not elude the fact that your class big shots are not living life. Every single person in this class of 1998 is living their life in a very special way. Just because you joined the Marines and are living with the slit eyed people doesn’t make your life any more amusing. Yeah I am sure several of us who haven’t made it out of the country cause we don’t wanna get bombed down-we’re protected here in AMERICA. And I’ll make sure I mentioned how your post meant so much for me to read, that when I am making millions and traveling the world at 30 something, that I thank you so much LOL

Comments: ’98 Grad….As much as I love being out of NPR, I kinda miss Gulf. It grows on you, like a fungus. I am still an athlete, playing basketball and going to school at USF. I am getting a degree in Finance then heading to California where I plan to get involved in acting. I have only seen about 10 people who have signed this book that I know…hopefully more will pop up. If you know me, write me!

Comments: CLASS OF 1998!!!!!!! I just saw the page tonight and wanted to tell everyone what’s up? High school is one of the best times of your life. Gulf was great. (College is better.) I made some life long friends there and can’t wait to see everyone at our reunion. I am currently attending the University of South Florida in Tampa and hope to someday go and teach at my alma mater Gulf High. Take care of it! I Miss You Steve and Joe.

So, how is everyone? I saw that a few of you signed this, so I figured that I would too. See you all in 2008 (hopefully?!)!!
